Somehow ‘Resident Evil’ Is Still a Viable Franchise, And Here’s a New Trailer That Proves That

Hey, we’re as surprised as you, but apparently the Resident Evil franchise is still alive and well, and we’ve got an all-new trailer for the series’ eighty-ninth (approximately) entry. For whatever reason, the franchise is still hung up on expanding on Alice (Milla Jovovich) and her past, with the evil Umbrella Corporation continuing to wage mental warfare on our leather be-clothed heroine while the world burns. Here’s a tip – the Umbrella Corporation has totally destroyed Earth and turned most of its population into zombies, Alice doesn’t need to be pissed at them for playing Matrix-y mind games with her, because we’re all pissed off enough with them as is.

But at least Resident Evil: Retribution also looks to have more explosions, more guns, and a big-ass monster thing, so that’s cool, too. Also, it’s in 3D, because of course. Check out the latest trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution after the break, and just imagine all that stuff flying at your face.

Resident Evil: Retribution opens on September 14th. [Yahoo! Movies]
